This CrossFit Kids program is a method for teaching CrossFit to children ages 9-13. Based on the principle of Mechanics, Consistency and then Intensity, CrossFit Kids emphasizes good movement throughout childhood and adolescence. Consistently good mechanics translates to physical literacy, enhanced sports performance and fewer sports injuries for kids. Not only that, a vast body of research indicates that exercise is beneficial to cognitive function, which means consistent adherence to the program can have a positive impact on children’s academic achievement.
CrossFit Kids is meant to be BIG fun for all ages. Broad-Inclusive-General fun. We will spend time training skills such as cardiovascular endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy. Our class will consist of a warmup, new skill, WOD (workout of the day) and will always end with a fun game. Our goal is to make fitness FUN while building a positive community for our youth.
